    Keeping track of certain behaviours that affect weight loss is a vital component of a comprehensive weight-loss plan. This type of self-monitoring can include keeping track of food intake, physical activity, body weight, body fat and waist circumference, and weight-related achievements and setbacks.

    Experts in the field of weight loss have found that when self-monitoring is used on a regular basis, the likelihood of weight-loss success increases.1 Not only has the ongoing recording of when and how much is eaten or how much exercise is performed been linked with losing weight, but it also has been associated with maintaining weight loss.1 Self-monitoring increases the awareness of both eating and physical activity.

    Weight Watchers has innovative devices to help you track your kilojoule and food group intake, plus activity and enhance your weight loss journey, including a mobile app and comprehensive online etools.
